This tastes like a strawberry croissant. It's crunchy, sweet, and a little salty. I never really cared for French toast until I started playing around and invented this. Serve with your favorite syrup.

  • Blend cream cheese, 2 tablespoons butter, and sugar in a separate bowl. Fold strawberries and lemon juice into the filling.

  • Divide filling between 2 slices of bread, spreading it out to the edges. Cover with remaining 2 slices of bread. Press sandwiches lightly together.

  • Mix eggs, coconut milk, vanilla extract, ground nutmeg, and salt in a shallow bowl to make egg wash.

  • Melt 1 1/2 teaspoon reserved bacon grease and 1 1/2 teaspoon butter in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle half the diced bacon evenly in the skillet. Dip 1 side of each sandwich in the egg wash. Place on top of the bacon in the skillet; cook until eggs are set and slightly browned, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

  • Melt remaining 1 1/2 teaspoon bacon grease and 1 1/2 teaspoon butter in the skillet. Sprinkle remaining diced bacon in the skillet. Dip the second side of each sandwich in egg wash and return to the skillet; cook until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Cut sandwiches in half and garnish with mint.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute milk for the coconut milk if desired.

Use your favorite fruit instead of strawberries if preferred.
